Casa Derika, a newly (2016) renovated self-catering house on Tofo beach is perfectly located, 100m away from the shore line, 50m away from the bursting Tofo town life and around 2 min walk to 4 scuba diving schools, lots of chill out places, as well as public transport. An awesome veranda allows you to relax and enjoy the beach in front of you. When you open the front stack doors, it feels as if you allow the beach inside the house.
Casa Derika has 2 bedrooms and sleep 6 people. Bedroom 1 has a double bed and bunker bed. 2nd bedroom has 2 single beds, all beds covered with linen and mosquito nets. The kitchen is fully equipped for self-catering with cutlery and crockery for 6 guests and includes a gas stove with oven, a fridge and a separate box freezer. The bathroom consist of separate rooms for the shows, toilet and wash basin. Casa Derika has standard SA 3 point plugs, a safe for your valuables and a nice outside braai on the beach. Please note, the following is not available TV, Aircon or microwave.
Casa Derika is serviced with municipal 220 volt electricity and water supply (we do not recommend it for drinking). Water can be collected from Casa Christine or Casa Isabel, which have borehole water supply. During peak season times (Christmas to New Year), the supply cannot match Tofo’s demand and periodic power and water cuts are experienced. The cottage is served by a house-cleaner during day-time ….. no need for mom to make the beds, sweep the floors, or wash the dishes. During night time (22:00 to 06:00) a guard is keeping an eye, out so that your privacy and security are not compromised. The house cleaner can arrange someone to wash your clothes at a modest fee. Casa Derika dates back to the pre-war colonial period (early 1960’s) during which a row of approximately 10 look-alike cottages was built by a Portuguese gentleman with the name of Mr. Poletta, right on the main beach at Tofo. Some of these cottages survived the period of war and was rehabilitated to their original state. Casa Derika, being one of them is located right in the middle.
Access to the cottage by motor vehicle was a few years ago destroyed by cyclones. Your motor vehicle needs to be parked some 50 meters from the cottage. The night guard also keeps an eye on your car.
